What exactly do you do after you've downloaded xmplay.zip? You should extract xmplay.exe to a folder and run it from there, you should not be running it directly from the zip file.

Good, where did you extract xmplay.exe to? C:\Program Files (x86)\XMPlay?

The registry has nothing to do with it, as XMPlay stores everything in xmplay.ini. Windows 7 does have tighter security, but XMPlay should work without problems.
Could you start XMPlay, open Options and stuff > Miscellaneous and tick 'Store per-user config/etc'? If you now restart XMPlay, does it retain its settings?

If you have installed XMPlay to the Program Files directory, it might be possible that XMPlay is not allowed to write its config file there. Be sure to enable "Store per-user config" in the "Miscellaneous" sections of the Options dialog to avoid this problem.

Edit: Dotpitch only beated me by a few seconds. =)

Ok, that solves your missing settings.

...but i get 10+ erorrs that sey msvcr90.dll/libsndfile.dll is missing from computer wich mey by a diferent problem separetet from xmplay.
What is the exact error text? Is the error coming from XMPlay, or from a different program?
msvcr90.dll is the Microsoft Visual C Runtime, you can get it from Microsoft.

I'm not even sure what the problem was or how it was fixed.
